Clean vents won’t help with Coronavirus but UV light services will

G&B clean coils specialty

G&B Environmental HVAC, Ducts, UV light…

We are getting calls about vent and duct cleaning to protect clients and their staff from Coronavirus. Unfortunately, while cleaner vents and new filters can help create a healthier environment they can’t stop micro-organisms in the Coronavirus. Microscopic allergens and other contaminants travel through the ducts in your HVAC system; they are too small to to filter out.

How does UV Light work?

Hospitals use UV light to disinfect equipment. Some are looking at using it to clean whole rooms. But UV light will burn your skin and retina. So the rooms must be empty during the process. We can help with this level of protection if you want it, but for most homes and businesses that is impractical. So we work through the HVAC system.

Ultraviolet lamps will kill airborne germs and organisms. The UV-C light disrupts their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions and causing them to die. That is essential because the coil stays wet for several months during the year and microorganisms, including mold, typically thrive in a wet environment.

A UV light unit is installed in the return air duct and cycles on with the air handler blower.  A complete UV light unit sterilizes moving air itself as it is pushed through the HVAC system. This treats the air that is contaminated by any number of sources. Learn more on how UV lamps work.

They work! But they don’t work alone and UV air purifiers installed in the HVAC system cannot guarantee that your family or staff will not infected by the virus.

What else can you do to keep your team safe?

Ultraviolet lamps can keep the air cleaner, but just as doctors wash their hands in the hospital, your staff will need to take everyday precautions as well. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention released guidelines to help you keep your office healthy:

  • Actively encourage sick employees to stay home
  • Separate sick employees
  • Emphasize staying home when sick, respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene by all employees
  • Perform routine environmental cleaning

Keep calm
We all want to keep our families, friends and staff safe and happy. A little common sense and some UV-C technology will help!

Minneapolis HVAC Air Filter Change Service Available to help. 952-469-3024

Breathing easy begins with clean air filters, which is why it’s incredibly important to replace them regularly in your home or office. Air filters exist to remove debris from the air before it enters your HVAC system. Clean filters trap harmful bacteria and pollutants, combating illness and allergies. In addition, clean filters save you money – according to the EPA, regularly changing your filters can cut five to 10 percent off your bill on average! When the filter is clean, debris will be trapped by the filter and not by the system itself, promoting HVAC efficiency.

The best time to replace your filter will generally be determined by your filter type. Refer to your HVAC manual and jot down your filter’s size and style – it will be helpful to have that information on hand while shopping! A good rule of thumb is to check your filters once a month. A typical suburban home without pets should plan to replace every three months. If you have a furry friend or two, you should replace every two months. Write the date on your filter before you install it so you’ll easily remember when you last replaced.

Keep the dirt in the super collector vacuum and not your vents.
